12. Agreed. It was the electoral college that got him into the Oval Office.

Trump lost the popular vote by millions and only won the electoral college because about 80,000 votes across crucial states went his way. Of course he just spent two months trying to undo Joe Biden's win electoral college win, and it's harrowing to think that it was entirely possible that Trump would again lose the popular vote and still eke out an electoral college win. That he pursued precisely that approach by trying to strong-arm state officials and disenfranchise voters ought to be a topic of national conversation, but of course some voters (and businesses) are only too willing to back Trump in his lies and even monetize them.
